WAY OF THE SEVEN STARS


Response To That Final Question:

Ignorance is the Bane of Man.
At a distance removed,
Dimly remembered, and
Still not seen distinct,
But yet somehow felt;
What we do sense
Is not reality; is not the Real Thing.
This World is hologram.
Then; for lucid sleep;
For it's just a dream
Within another dream
And we are not awake.

Seven Stars' Song of Revelation

Ignorance is a jail where no escape
Is possible but through knowledge.
Don't fear nor spurn. Dare to learn:

Assent to and accept this world as it is
Before attempting ascent to any world
Aspired to or wished for. Life's glorious!

That That Is can be known but by few.
Not space, not time, not gravity exists;
But as Extension from Field of Thought.

Be subject to neither church nor crown.

Dread naught. Disdain none: Not One!
Absent That That Is, there's Nothing.

That That Is, IS. That That's Not, IS, too.
That That's Not makes That That Is: IS.
That That Is makes That That's Not BE.

By rowing to That That Is, I become "I."
Wind + Water = Wave. As THOUGHT is
The Heart and The Nave of The Wheel.

Worlds are created from Thought alone.
That which we will do is because of that
What we are. We'll become who we are.

Charity, courtesy, civility, compassion,
Are cardinal spokes making civilization;
Chivalry forms center, hub's circle core.

IS is! Be not the slave of some other's I.
This, Creed of our Seven Stars Society;
This, The Teaching of the Seven Stars:

No man can be happy if he should choose
To be exile from his own nature and soul.
ALL IS THOUGHT ILLUMINATING BEING

Carbon Taxation and Rationing

Carbon taxation and lessening emissions through cap and trade rationing cannot work to reduce pollution, because taxation and rationing decrease economic activity, and a decrease in economic activity actually increases pollution---it has an adverse affect. The poorer the society, the more polluted it shall be. Although there is much talk of climate change (climates always change...it is why they're called climates), climate change is but a single symptom of an underlying problem of pollution: pollution of air, soil and water. Pollution has to be prohibited to be reduced and harsh penalties imposed upon polluters. If some global carbon tax were implemented and imposed; for each year the tax were to be in effect, global economic consumption would be reduced a percent.
There never was an energy shortage. There never will be an energy shortage. And in a hundred years, laser-fusion shall become practical and economically efficient. The real problem is one of distribution---the smart grid problem, and there's many entities working to solve the problem. If governments desire to reduce pollution and they do, the efficient economic way to do so is to fund those projects that employ the best and quickest methods, and to fine and to jail polluters.
